to john boehner is, let's go over the cliff. that we can live with the sequester and we absolutely will not raise tax rates no matter what. what that does is eliminate all of the tax cuts and then there's a new fight in january to push obviously by the democrats to restore tax cuts for 98% of americans. and then that will be muddied by the need for a debt ceiling increase and the fight goes in to february. it's government at the brink all the time. we don't know how the markets and the credit rating agencies will react. probably be bad ybut i think that's what you hear conservatives saying. >> erin, so far wall street for the most part reacting in a calm fashion. we know that could go out the window. no one knows what could happen and how long it would take for us to fall in to a recession. but with that said, our first read team points out you have to know when to hold 'em, when to fold 'em. the song, i'm a texan. he's a texan. did we see this coming all along to see a split dealing with the tax cuts first and then kicking the can as you heard congressman yarmuth say down the road

, according to the republicans, unserious, it flabbergasted the speaker of the house, john boehner. though tim geithner went out yesterday and said, that plan that we're pushing? it's a good one. here he is. >> we think that's a very good set of proposals. we think that's what's good fort economy. if they've got different suggestions, they want to go further in some areas, they should lay it out to us. >> i think we're going over the cliff. it's pretty clear to me they've made a political calculation. this offer doesn't remotely deal with entitlement reform in a we to save medicare and medicaid and social security from imminent bankruptcy. it raises $1.6 trillion on job creators that will destroy the economy and there are no spending controls. i'm serious about revenue. you can limit deductions to 40 or $50,000 a person, which takes care of the middle class, upper income americans will lose their deductions and raise about 800 billion dollars in revenue. but i'll only do that if we do entitlement reform and the president's plan, when it comes to entitlement reform is just quite frankly, a joke
